About Hatteras Island


Our map shows important cultural and natural resources on Hatteras Island. Hatteras Island is an Outer Banks barrier island located about 25 miles from the mainland, and bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and Pamlico Sound. Seven small villages - Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon, Buxton, Frisco, and Hatteras - adjoin the Cape Hatteras National Seashore on the island. The island's most popular icon, the black and white spiral-striped Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, built in 1870, keeps watch over a martime culture indelibly shaped by the island's unique natural ecosystem.
